We love our pets and they love us, but sometimes their comfort might slip our minds. In order to save money on our electrical bills, many of us will turn our air conditioning units off or up really high so they don’t run all day while we’re gone. However, doing this can pose some serious issues to our beloved pets.

Cats and dogs typically come with coats of warm fur, which they can’t remove when they get too hot. Additionally, unlike humans, animals can’t adjust the temperature of the air conditioning unit back down in the afternoon, when the heat really starts to rise.

The good news is that you don’t have to choose between keeping your wallet fat and your pets healthy, happy and comfortable. You can run your air conditioning anywhere from 72 to 80 degrees while you’re out. By doing this, you can still save a good amount of IMG_7999-savemoney on your electrical bill and keep your pets comfortable.

If you want to ensure that your air conditioning unit is running at its optimal potential so you can save some major dough on your electric bill. Go to www.trusttiger.com or call 1-888-9TIGER1 to set up an inspection of your air conditioning unit.

Are you still worried about your pets overheating while you’re out and about? Check out these simple tips to help keep your furry family members cool and comfortable when you’re not around.

1. Fans to the Rescue

If you love the feel of a fan blowing cool air your way on a hot August day, chances are that your pets will love it too. Setup a box fan on the floor in front of an air conditioning vent. Your pet will love the cold air blowing on their fur in the middle of an afternooAir Conditioningn.

2. The Frozen Bottle Trick

Freeze a bottle of water overnight, then wrap it in a towel and place it in your pet’s favorite resting spot. When your pet gets overheated she can curl up in her favorite spot comfortably.

3. Get Grooming

All of that fur on your baby is undoubtedly adorable, but it’s causing her a lot of discomforts. So, head over to the groomer and say goodbye to all of that hot, hot fur! Don’t worry, her fur will grow back a lot faster than you might think and she’ll be a lot more comfortable during the summer months. As an added bonus, you’ll be almost completely pet hair free for a couple of months!

4. Provide a Nice Refreshing Drink

Drop a few ice cubes in your pet’s water bowl before you head out. The ice will help keep your pets water cooler, longer and a lot of animals love playing with and munching on ice cubes. So, they will be cool and entertained while you’re away!

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
